What an amazing treat this video rental was! They have 40,000 videos!! My sailor son goes here to rent all kinds of movies and tv episodes. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. I have never seen that many movies in one place. What an experience.

In my opinion, the sound system needs improvement. I am not talking about adding a high definition surround sound system. What this theater needs is some speakers in the balcony and some addition speakers in the back of the first floor. I found a great seat in the balcony, but when the movies started, I could barely hear the dialogue.... More

Like the small size (only one screen), Old refurbished theatre. Main line and off line features. Reasonably priced admission and snacks. Walking distance to many fine restaraunts.

Love this small, art deco theater. Named after Nathan and Rose, the owner's parents. Great to have an honest, independent, small family theater left in town. I go there for new releases as well as classics and of course, Rocky Horror!

Great local art house type theater. Vintage decor and atmosphere with a flair for the artistic and out of the norm films. Don't expect Widescreen super sound but good quality entertainment. Seating is vintage as well so make sure the film's not too long

The Naro is a small but comfortable theatre. Old but classic and in good condition. Staff is very nice and helpful. It's the only theatre in the area that shows foreign and independent films. Movies with substance. Highly recommend.

We went with a group of friends to the Naro Expanded Cinema on Halloween night to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show. They show the movie and have a live show that accompanies it. We had a great time, but as they warn you it is raunchy and vulgar and not meant for children.

There isn't anything not to love about the Naro in Ghent. Okay, sometimes it's hard to find parking, but when you do it's free. The concession stand doesn't have a million items to chose from, but the items they have are probably just what you want and the prices can't be beat. The movies are chosen not for their popular...

Have seen many interesting films here. Some went mainstream, some just good to have seen though they did not become "big". Hope they never close

Naro is one of those retro-style theaters, shows movies you might not find on the big-screen; the crowd is definitely different, "high end" if you like; the movies brook intellectual conversations (I went here to watch a movie as part of a class once); you should definitely give it a try!
